Introducing Lylah

Woo Hoo, day 3 of previews, are you all having fun, I know I am. Today we have Lylah, isn't she a stunner. She was the first of the fashionettes that I made up into a card :) I love the bob hair cut, she makes me think of Mary Tyler Moore, lol! I wanted to go for a more vintage feel with this card and have again used October Afternoon papers from Delicious Papercrafting, inking my edges, and kraft card stock (I am in LOVE with this stuff!!) The pearl flourish and mini pearls on the butterfly bodies are all Flourish with a Bling, available from Tickled Pink Stamps, along with the tassel ribbon(so perfect on your vintage style cards, I must get some more, Kellie has it in black too!) The butterflies are a MS punch and Lylah has been coloured with my copics. I have been meaning to write down colours as I go but I get distracted and usually colour a couple of things at once and there are markers everywhere... yep, I'm not one of those 'neat and organised' crafters. You will probably never see a pic of my workspace on Whats on your Workdesk Wednesday, lol! But I have to admit, at the minute it's not too bad, I cleared up the usual explosion of stuff that covers the top of the desk and for the last 2 days have been working on my wedding invitations (and they have, so far come together fairly quickly, but I have probably just jinxed myself) OK, enough of my waffles, lol, here is the card, featuring the magnificent Lylah:
Make sure you head on over HERE... and check out the pink Ladies amazing work, and maybe get yourself into the draw for a Lylah of your very own :)
